Indira Gandhi Matritvya Sahyog Yojana (IMGSY)

India contributes a quarter of all global maternal deaths with only 47% of women likely to have an institutional delivery. Additionally, the absence of adequate pre-natal and post-natal care also leads to malnourishment in women and child. In order to overcome these issues IGMSY was launched where financial incentives would be provided for proper care of maternal and child well-being. The scheme provides a compensation of 6000/- to every pregnant women for following certain government set mandates.
